Leids Bakkie

(Translation: Having Coffee in Leiden)


With Pieter, a well known Flickr photographer from The Hague.


Pieter had come to Leiden to visit the famous Ladies from Van Luyken.

Van Luyken is a music store that sells classical music, the ladies who own it are extremely knowledgeable about classical music and it is virtually impossible to find a store with that kind of expertise anymore.


We had agreed to meet Pieter at the Town hall of Leiden where there is a large cafe.

As I stepped up to Pieter he said that they had no apple-pie, which from my point of view is a mortal sin. So we left as soon as we could, visited the Ladies Van Luyken and then headed for a small cafe that did have apple-pie (very good apple-pie, actually).


It was lovely weather, it was the best of company...what more can I say?


We head a great time.


Thanks, Pieter.
